- convert is the boolean, int, or string to convert
This function looks for the best float match to the specified input, which varies by datatype. For int types, this function merely tacks ".0" to the end. For booleans, a transparent conversion as per to_int() is performed first, and then converted to a float. All other data types do not work.
Following example shows basic to_float operations.It gives the following output.
Int 25 gives 25.0 Boolean true gives 1.0 Boolean false gives 0.0
